Tooth Tissues for a Toddler’s Toothy Grin

by Erica

My two-year-old loves to parade around the house with his toothbrush in hand, brushing away at his teeth. And although he is usually rather excited when it is time to brush his teeth, he does have those occasional cranky mornings and late nights, when he does not want me to come near him with his toothbrush. And as many of you parents know, a stubborn two-year old can put up quite a fight.

But thankfully, on those days when he decides to exert his toddler independence, I can reach for my Tooth Tissues, which help me to quickly and gently remove decay causing plaque from his teeth. Although they were designed to use after a baby’s feedings, in between brushings and after meals-on-the go, I do also use them when my son refuses to brush his teeth.
Tooth Tissues

Invented by two dentists to use on their own children, Tooth Tissues are disposable textured dental wipes especially designed to help remove plaque from baby and toddler’s teeth and gums. Tooth Tissues are perfect for busy new parents eager to get their child off to a healthy start.

Formulated with xylitol – a natural cavity fighter, Tooth Tissues can be used with confidence because they are 99% natural, fluoride and paraben-free.

I like to keep mine in my purse to use when we are on the go, especially after my children have been to a birthday party snacking on sweets. I also use them often with my 7 month old after his feedings.

They are easy to use and they really do leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean. Yes, I use them on my own teeth as well.

Younger children consume a lot of milk, juice and other sweetened beverages. They walk around with their sippy cups, sometimes for large chunks of the day. They fall asleep after nursing or feeding on a bottle. The sugars in these beverages feed bacteria into the mouths. The bacteria produces acids which attack the teeth and cause decay. Prevention is important!

With Tooth Tissues you can help to maintain your child’s healthy smile while also promoting proper oral hygiene. Now that is something to smile about!

If you would like to win a pack of Tooth Tissues, please leave a comment below. We have two packs to give away. We will select our winner on Saturday, November 8th.

15 The Gang's All Here! October 25, 2008 at 9:09 pm

This would be a great way to break Li’l Empress in to the idea and practice of dental hygiene. Apparently, it wasn’t a huge priority in the foster home she came from . . . and I’m not wanting a battle now every time I get a whiff of her formula breath!!!!

73 willowsprite October 27, 2008 at 12:51 pm

Hi guys! Although I think that dental care is very important, I do not think that these tissues are a solution. They are not “green” at all, making them very wasteful. You can get compact toothbrushes with cases to pop in your purse for on-the-go cleaning. I use Summer brand finger toothbrush. It’s a silicone brush you stick on your finger (if you’re going to put your finger in your son’s mouth, might as well use something you can clean over and over!) It comes with a handy little case. Try it out! :)

74 bee October 27, 2008 at 1:46 pm

120 Amy November 7, 2008 at 9:01 pm

Great item – my son is exactly the same – some days very happily brushes them but others outright and stubbornly refuses.

The website for these tissues says tooth decay for kids is on the rise. I know they would be for my child if he lived closer to his mother in law. She adores her grandkids but gives them all kinds of sugary snacks she’s adamantly sure is “real food” as opposed to nursing milk many parents give babies primarily up to a year. Sugar cereals, french toast sticks. She doesn’t bother too much with teeth because she says they’re only temporary anyway. Meanwhile, our last visit, one of my neices had about four rotten teeth removed – ouch I’m sure.

121 Lily Kwan November 7, 2008 at 10:51 pm

Please enter me into the contest. Thanks!

122 Timothy Sternberg November 7, 2008 at 11:52 pm

124 amy November 8, 2008 at 3:16 pm

please enter me these would come in handy with 4 kids…especially a 14 month old

125 Pamela White November 8, 2008 at 9:45 pm
